This Romaine type lettuce is named after Parris Island, across the Broad River from the famous Hilton Head Island on the South Carolina coast. This delicious, crunchy, sweet lettuce is great for Caesar salad, wraps, sandwiches and even for scooping your favorite dips. Disease tolerant and slow to bolt are among some of the reasons gardeners have loved this lettuce since its retail debut in 1951.
Sow seeds 1/4″ deep, 2″ apart when ground is warm and all chance of frost has past. For best results plant in spring and fall or for midsummer in an area where it will receive afternoon shade. Thin to 6″. Harvest outside leaves for a prolonged harvest, or harvest the whole head. Plants will benefit from an organic compost or manure.
